LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Replace current clueless leadership

The Washington Times

The rule of law, colorblind as it is, and its process applies to all 50 states, including Missouri. Our activist attorney general may think we are a nation of cowards in regard to race relations, but if he is not aware of this American foundation of law, he needs to be replaced. The days of listening to Spike Lee, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, who speak only to fan the eternal flame of racial division, are over.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Thuggery must be confronted, not condoned

The Washington Times

Ferguson, Mo., is another example of violence, looting, destruction of property and injury to the economy undertaken by so-called "activists" inciting protests. A white Ferguson police officer fatally shot a black teenager, and the immediate reaction by the mobs was to make this a racial issue before the facts were determined. The violence has continued.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Conditions ripe for GOP to take Senate

The Washington Times

President Obama's immigration mess; the Islamic State's murderous takeover of parts of Iraq and Syria; Hamas vs. Israel; the Ebola virus now on American soil; the Ferguson, Mo., riots; a mountain of growing U.S. debt; and a disconnected president are all gifts to the Republicans in the run-up to the midterm elections. Also, don't forget the IRS scandal; the EPA's war on oil, coal and nuclear energy; and the multitude of other federal government scandals.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fast-food workers needs manners, too

The Washington Times

I must assume that an irritating problem our family is encountering in local fast-food establishments is not unique to us. Routinely, when we order our food, the person taking the order asks us multiple times to repeat our requests. We all speak clearly, without speech defects or impediments. While we have seen this in virtually every such establishment in town, one in particular appears to be in much greater need of listening skills training than the rest. Of course, I won't name names, but we order Big Macs.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Wounded Knee 2014?

Now America knows what Sitting Bull felt like in 1876. It is ironic that the descendants of the very foreign invaders who destroyed the great Lakota Nation should now, 138 years later, be overwhelmed by foreign invaders themselves.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Charges against Kurdish government unfounded

I read "U.S. Yazidis wary of arming Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq" (Web, Aug. 13) with great concern. I think the story is inaccurate and misleading in several respects, that it is one-sided and rests on the personal opinions of two individuals who are both far from the front lines and poorly informed about the situation in today's Kurdistan region.
